Our Mission

The Oregon Folklife Network makes a meaningful difference in Oregon communities and Tribes by documenting, supporting, and celebrating our diverse cultural traditions and by empowering our tradition-bearers.

The OFN conducts folklife fieldwork and sponsors statewide activities to increase public awareness of the significance of living cultural heritage and the role of the OFN in fostering such art forms.

The Oregon Folklife Network serves as a hub for statewide folklife activities in partnership with the Oregon Arts Commission, Oregon Cultural Trust, Oregon Historical Society, Oregon State Library, and Oregon Heritage Commission, along with community partners, including Oregon Tribes, community-based cultural organizations, museums, regional cultural alliances, local arts agencies, K12 schools, universities and colleges, and public libraries. The OFN receives generous support from the Oregon Cultural Trust, the Oregon Arts Commission, and the National Endowment for the Arts.
